Dothideomycetes » Dothideomycetes, genera incertae sedis


Mycothyridium Petr., Sydowia 15(1-6): 288 (1962) [1961].

= Xylosphaeria G.H. Otth, Mitt. naturf. Ges. Bern 654-683: 53 (1869) [1868].

 Index Fungorum number: IF 3348; Facesoffungi number: FoF 12325, 9 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2022), no molecular data available.

See Petrak (1961).

 Type species: Xylosphaeria elliptica G.H. Otth

Notes: Petrak (1962) synonymized Mycothyridium to Xylosphaeria. Morphological description and information regarding Mycothyridium is scarce. Molecular data is lacking. Lumbsch and Huhndorf (2010), Kirk et al. (2013) and Wijayawardene et al. (2017, 2020) referred Mycothyridium to Dothideomycetes genera incertae sedis. Fresh collections with DNA sequence data are needed to confirm the systematic position of Mycothyridium.
